Weekend Casual

I might wear dresses 95% of the time, but I swear I do so for comfort.

There is nothing more weekend appropriate in my mind than an oversized dress, tote bag, and simple pair of sneakers. To me this look is 100000% more comfortable than a tee shirt and jeans.

Last week I discovered a new favorite store of mind, Aland. This Korean store just opened up their first location in the US and it's just down the street from me in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Super affordable pieces, most in a one size fits most size. I can't wait to go back!

Also, I know what you guys are saying...another striped dress? My love for stripes almost rivals my love for polka dots. I think it's starting to get a little out of control. But how could I say no to this oversized dress...the side slits alone won over my heart.

What does your typical weekend style look like?

Summer Wish List

With summer literally around the corner I have come to the realization that my closet is not prepared. That being said, I have been doing a lot of virtual window shopping...and my list of "wants" is getting quite long. Here are some of top favorites...

This rainbow stripe button-front tank top available at Madewell screams summer to me. Paired with jeans, shorts, or a midi-skirt...it's summer perfection.

I have been lusting over these sandals from Seven All Around for some time now. They are available in eight different colors...but the dusty pink pair has won over my heart.

Give me a quirky bag and call it a day! I love purses that are fun and make you smile, just like this California Dreaming Surf 3D Van purse available at Kate Spade.

I adore a romper in during the summer time. The look of a dress with the ease of shorts! I am loving this Floral and Polka Dot Jumpsuit from Zara.

Are you currently eyeing up any particular summer pieces for your wardrobe?

Year Round Wardrobe

There is nothing I hate more than hearing how people put away their spring and summer clothing when the temperature starts to decline. Adding layers to looks makes them wearable all year long! Throw on a turtleneck under your sundress. Pop on some tights under your denim shorts. Wear a cardigan over anything! Adding some layers to your looks will help your closet grow without shelling out a ton of cash.

So I know what you're saying, "this outfit looks familiar!" Well, that's because you may remember it from this past summer. I wanted to show you how I transitioned one of my favorite summer looks to be cool weather appropriate.

Step 1- Layer over fleece lined tights.

My favorite pair is this one I'm wearing from LOFT. Sometimes fleece lined tights can feel a little bulky. These do not. They feel super slim, yet as warm and comfortable as sweatpants.

Step 2- Add your favorite cardigan.

I love wearing thin layers like this. A tissue thin tank top paired with this thin (and ever so soft) cardigan is a perfect combo in my mind. Warm and cozy without being too hot.

Step 3- Finish the look with your favorite boot.

I love this look with a casual and slightly edgy bootie. The buckles add a little extra flavor to a very simple look.

Do you ever transition your warm weather looks for cooler temperatures?

TREND ALERT- The Utility Jumpsuit

2018 is finally here and we're bringing in the new year with a must have trend: The Utility Jumpsuit. Yes, I know that wearing something that looks like coveralls is not everyone's cup of tea...but this is a simple item that will definitely give you some style points this year. Be sure to add a cute belt, pair of killer heels, or adorable tennis shoes to bring this look to the next level.

Here are some of my favorite utility jumpsuits that retail for under $120.

I've already seen this trend a good deal around NYC and I have to say it is really growing on me. If it's done right it looks so chic. What are your thoughts???

Back to Basics

You know, when it gets so hot outside (and I'm talking hot and humid city heat) wearing anything is a hassle. So I kept it simple today...wearing as little as possible to stay as cool as I can.

I picked up a few of these super light weight tanks from Madewell recently and let me just tell you that they are perfect for days like this. Super breathable and you barely feel like you are wearing anything at all. You all should go pick up a few now as they are marked on sale!

This has been my hot day uniform lately. Comfy and cool. What do you all tend to wear when the weather is unbearable?
